I'm at 40,000 miles. I pull 6500# regularly now. I still like it, knock on wood. I had two alternator pulleys leaking that the dealer took care of. It does not stop the truck. Biggest fear with that would be someone washes off the alternator then your pulley is empty of fluid and not dampening the vibrations as it should. I do however have weird squeak squeak squeak at low to could be 40mph that is not in time with the motor or wheels and it's driving me bonkers. It's not the brakes either. It actually sppeds up when the truck slows down. Friggin weird.
I think the choice of getting a diesel Colorado is simply that there was nothing to compete with it for the 2016 model. Towing capacity, size, usefulness and MPG. There is absolutely nothing else out there that can get 30mpg and then tow serious weight.
